I have never told the only way is targeting the colon with antifungal enemas. I have told people should target candida orally and rectally. Both way. The medical evidence stays most of the fungal colonies live in the cecum. The small bowel isn’t totally sterile but is a hard environment for microbial growth. However, the end of the small bowel is more conditioned to microbes. An intestinal candidiasis can occur anywhere in the intestines. I think the most difficult part is the intracellular candidiasis. There are many things that doesn’t favor an anticandida treatment, one of them is most of the antifungals are fungistatic, another thing is how difficult is to reach candida inside the intestines, and the immune deficiency candida sufferers have. The intestines have all candida need, humidity, darkness, and a right temperature for a fungal growth. Add to it the food we eat.
I don’t have any doubt the small bowel can be infested with candida and the mucus layer may provide shelter to it.
